On a mission to pick up a gift card for an upcoming wedding, last week we discovered the Crate and Barrel has a store in Spring Valley, DC. Delighted to save ourselves a trip to the mall, Mom and I popped over and were delighted to discover that the store has an entire floor dedicated to the C&B furniture line. We started trying out chairs and couches, and then fell in love with the chair and ottoman shown above...
Shown in Notting Hill Copper, the Petrie Leather Chair is wide and extremely comfortable, the ideal reading nook for me. Mom loved the 60s styling- the tapered legs and tufted cushions apparently called to mind the first sofa she and my dad ever owned (why oh why did they ever get rid of that piece?)
The chair features a certified sustainable, kiln-dried hardwood frame, and the seat cushion is soy-based polyfoam with fiber encased in downproof ticking. Made in the USA, this chair would be a wonderful addition to any room. In person, the butter soft copper leather is truly beautiful; the chair feels broken-in even though it isn't.
Unfortunately, the $2900 price for the package ($2000 for the chair, $900 for the ottoman) means we the chair behind for others to enjoy, but if you are in the market for new seating, we highly recommend checking out this model of the ever-popular Petrie line.
